If I could draw what God is showing me I would draw a womb of creation, seeded deep inside of each of us that springs forth life, the life of Jesus. The womb. I was told during a wedding at the Aramaic word for love that Jesus uses, the deeper meaning of this word is womb.
“As the Father has loved me, so have I loved you. Now remain in my love. John 15: 9
Sit at my feet….the sheep know my voice, guard your heart for out of the heart comes the wellspring of life. (Proverbs 4:23)
( Luke 10: 38-39 “Now she had a sister called Mary, which also sat at Jesus feet and heard his word.” )
The womb is where we sit at Jesus feet. It is where the wellspring of life comes from because if is Gods design for us. It is also from that womb that we love others.
In John 8:4 on the last and greatest day of the Feast, Jesus stood and said in a loud voice, “If anyone is thirsty, let him come to me and drink , Whoever believes in me as the Scripture has said, streams of living water will flow from within him. By this he meant the Spirit, whom those who believed in him were later to receive.”
The spirit of God is love…God is love and he has created us in love. He loves us and he has given us his spirit.
It is from that womb that we love. It grows out of us, sometimes painfully sometimes joyfully, changing everything in its path, producing change in us and through us.
This is the secret of the secret place. Where the intimacy with God pushes the love out of our womb and into our soul and through others. It is the secret of the vine. Our living connection with the Father through Jesus.
“John 15:4 – Dwell in Me, and I will dwell in you. Live in Me, and I will live in you. Just as no branch can bear fruit of itself without abiding in (being vitally united to) the vine neither can you bear fruit without being vitally united to me.
I want to be vitally united, attached to Jesus. It is how were were created. From this place I can live. It is life.
